About Belle Derks

Belle Derks is full professor of Social and Organizational Psychology at Utrecht University, the Netherlands. She studies the psychological consequences of the negative stereotypes that women and ethnic minorities face in work- and educational settings. An example of this work is her research on the Queen Bee phenomenon, e.g., women who dissociate from other women to get ahead in a masculine organization. For her research she acquired several prestigious grants, such as the NWO VENI (2008) and NWO VIDI (2015). Belle was chairperson of the Dutch Young Academy (part of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences) from 2018-2020.
